The data deluge isn’t slowing down anytime soon – subscribers are demanding ever more content and Internet of Things market is about to explode. Mobile operators must figure out how to support this extra traffic on their overloaded networks, and ideally without purchasing expensive new spectrum.

Enter one of the hottest innovations in the industry: LTE over an unlicensed spectrum. By aggregating unlicensed spectrum with an anchor in licensed spectrum, mobile operators can cost-effectively and efficiently add capacity and coverage where it’s needed. Heavy Reading analyst Gabriel Brown and Radisys’ small cell expert Renuka Bhalerao will share insights into the approaches to delivering this technology today, the associated challenges and how to overcome them.

You will learn:

  • The drivers behind LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) technology, driven by the LTE-U Forum, which delivers a pre-standardized approach deployable today
  • How LTE-Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) from 3GPP is delivering a standardized approach to the technology and look at the path to deployment
  • Why small cells are the right choice in unlicensed spectrum, due to a radius that aligns with WiFi, low power requirements, and built-in carrier aggregation techniques
  • How coexistence with Wi-Fi and other technologies in unlicensed spectrum will work, including a detailed look at “Listen Before Talk” techniques
  • What lessons have been learned in field trials to date

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
